K. M. Walton
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If you want it, make it happen.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I'd still be me. Maybe the skinnier me from my 20s but, still me.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Ireland. It's the most magical place on Earth to me.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. One-uppers. People who are incapable of complimenting and then try and top what you're saying or just out and out lie to top you. It's weird and I'll never understand it.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I'm a big fan of "so." Kind of a boring word, but sweet mother do I use it a lot.
